I believe it DOES apply extra attacks under the following understanding: "...when you take your (regular) action to cast a cantrip, you may make one weapon attack as a bonus action." You're allowed to make an attack action as a bonus action, it just must be made with a weapon. So in this case, you cannot make an unarmed attack with this bonus ...

If a spell is meant to exclude friendly creatures it says so We can look at this by examining each sentence of the rule. You weave illusion magic into your arrow, causing it to occlude your foe’s vision with shadows. This sentence says that the shadow arrow occludes the vision of your foes. It does not state, however, that the shadow arrow can only occlude ...

In context, "your foe" is whoever you're shooting with the arrow. You're attacking someone with a deadly weapon; almost by definition, this makes them your enemy. If they weren't before, they almost surely are now that you've shot them. The description goes on to say that "the creature hit by the arrow" must make a Wisdom save to avoid ...

The wording makes your question moot The creature hit by the arrow takes an extra 2d6 psychic damage, and it must succeed on a Wisdom saving throw... The creature hit by the arrow suffers two effects: the psychic damage and must save against its vision being occluded. Any creature that the arrow hits, foe or not, has a chance of its vision being blocked. ...

Tremorsense and Blindsight are 'seeing', but cannot be blocked by shadows. Truesight would not be affected either, but for a different reason. Tremorsense and Blindsight are a little more complicated. Let's deal with them first. Do Tremorsense and Blindsight function as seeing? The question you cite contains two examples of how such senses can function as ...

Tremorsense and Blindsight are not "seeing" Blindsight is pretty clear from the description: without relying on sight. Tremorsense is also not sight and only requires contact with the ground: A monster with tremorsense can detect and pinpoint the origin of vibrations within a specific radius, provided that the monster and the source of the ...

No, it cannot (usually). The class feature description of the echo knight's Manifest Echo gives no guidance here, but the echo knight subclass description is not all features - Explorer's Guide to Wildemount (p. 183) motivates for us exactly what an echo knight's Manifest Echo ability is doing: A mysterious and feared frontline warrior of the Kryn Dynasty, ...

Piercing Arrow's damage can be critical in this situation. On a failed save, a creature takes damage as if it were hit by the arrow "As if it were X" means we treat the situation like X actually happened, so we treat this situation like the target was hit by the arrow. In fact, how else could we calculate the damage that this would deal? An arrow ...

Does that mean that against surprised opponents, the Piercing Arrow damage would be critical and rolling double the dice damage? Yes. Piercing Arrow's description specifically states "you don't make an attack roll for the attack", so it is an attack. Any hit onto a surprised creature would be a critical hit. Assassinate doesn't care if an attack ...
